Woah, that thing looks really interesting. What's its size? Can you get a ventral pic?

Hey, that looks like a familiar spider I see in my garage all the time. Actually, I found one earlier, they are very cool looking, I found one that looks like that with white polka dots all over it, but I didn't bother doing anything with it..it was pretty small.

i saw one of those in my friend's flat back home in Canada. i was back for a visit and got suckered into helping her clean out her flat and move... was very impressed with it, and of course safely put it outside in the bushes.
